Why The Independent hates independence - Morrissey Central
March 28, 2018

The importance of an artist (or political figure) is sometimes evident in the efforts taken to silence them. Two weeks ago, with stiff-backed priggishness, The Independent printed an extreme Hate Piece so loaded with vile bile that it almost choked on its own endless capacity to be appalled. As its target, it seemed evident that The Independent found me so morally shredded and physically repulsive that I appeared to fascinate them, whilst it also seemed obvious that any announcement of my painful death would make them laugh loudly. Yes, this is what we’re dealing with. Their moral outrage is certain that it has hit upon something as they take a stab at just about everything whilst hitting nothing.
Telford grooming gangs? Hardly worth a whisper in The Independent. Instead let’s demonize Morrissey - who deserves our indefatigable abuse since he appears to be saying some things that many people are actually thinking. To truthophobics, I am apparently worse than useless.

You see, The Independent ‘newspaper’ isn’t actually a paper with news, and it will express only the views of their editor/dictator, whose name is Christian Broughton. What he will tell us is happening and what we see is happening are two entirely different things. In order to find out the truth of anything, you must take note of what Christian Broughton does not allow into print.
My manager (Peter Katsis) spoke to Christian Broughton after the Hate Piece had appeared, and he asked why Broughton had sanctioned such a diabolically contrived and bitterly inaccurate mess. Broughton pointed out that “it would be difficult to find anyone at The Independent
who agreed with Morrissey’s views.” This almost- illiterate reply fully reveals The Independent’s dog-yapping will to destroy anyone with a view that doesn’t match their own. The Independent, you see, must supervise and censor art - that is their function.
But what are my views? And why do they ‘get at’ the stiff boundaries of The Independent? And what is The Independent independent of? Truth? Shame? They state confidently that, when I recently asked a packed audience at Glasgow Arena if they actually liked Nicola Sturgeon, that half the audience walked out in disgust towards me. As you can guess, without any principals of justice. The Glasgow audience, in fact, roared a deafening “NOOOOO!” in reply to the question, and not one person was known to have left the venue in protest. The Independent is willing to lie to its readers in order to create a skewed truth, and to hell with any principals of justice. If the newspaper is willing to take such silly risks with very basic facts then what on earth could they report that you would actually believe? They tell their readers that I “loathe Nicola Sturgeon” (which is untrue), and they explain by way of sneering slur how I am “loving Brexit”.

I believe I have mentioned Brexit twice in my entire life, and neither comment expressed love. I had explained how Brexit had been a strike for democracy because of the disgust that the political elite had shown towards the people who did not vote the way that they were warned to by media bullies. But why attack anyone who loves Brexit? Almost two years on from the result, the EU still has not allowed the UK to leave its clutches - which simply explains exactly why the Leave campaigners voted as they did in the first place. Doesn’t it twig?
However, any Brexit loathing by The Independent does not reflect majority opinion, and this lends them no independent thought whatsoever, but blind bureaucratic arrogance instead. This is symptomatic of a modern, shredded British society, where free speech no longer exists. When the print media are lost for a reply, they simply change the subject by naming their
opponent as ‘racist’, which is the perfect ploy because most people are naturally appalled to be called racist, and they step back in silence, and the debate collapses unresolved. Use of the word often only ever comes from people who themselves are intolerant. It works. Even though England introduced the world to democracy, great art and great literature, it is now leading the way with a dark and largely hidden agenda where no one is entitled to disagree; only one interest and opinion must prevail within the print media. Art is now fully outside tabloid journalism, and the gaping hole shrieks at us via the commercial arena with its automatic laughter and the impotent emotion of reality TV. The American genius William Burroughs was once interviewed on Radio 1 in the 1970s. Today’s Radio 1 is such an intellectually paralyzed blast of surface that it would not remotely consider interviewing anyone of the nature or intellect of Burroughs. Is civilization over? The cannibalistic mobile grave known as The Guardian suggests so. Thrilled at the knowledge of their own power, both The Guardian and The Independent daily confirm the views of everyone who morally objects to them (and The News of The World turns in its urn.) Their intolerant and totalitarian criticism of others reveals so much about themselves. Perhaps newspapers just cannot keep up with the open-ness and tolerance of internet news sites? The future of The Independent seems only a question of your commitment to it. It claims that I support Harvey Weinstein - someone about whom I know almost nothing. I do not believe I could recognize him in photographs. The Independent also claims that my audience have deserted me - yet this month I have completed my most successful UK tour, selling 22,000 tickets in London alone, selling out concerts at Alexandra Palace, The London Palladium, Brixton Academy and The Royal Albert Hall, all played within the space of 8 days. The Independent has an almost breathless capacity for misinformation and deception. Its uncontested rules of hate are like a fully drawn bow aiming its arrow at 42 targets, yet hitting none; bitter at the core, yet taking a stab, as its writer moves with one-way-or-another-you-will-remember-my-name outrage.

I am neither Loony Left nor Far Right. I am a humanitarian. I have not ever once voted in a British election because I have not ever discovered a party that represents my views. My main social concern is the abolition of the abattoir, the continued existence of which in modern times is beyond sane belief.
I confess that my life in music has been stunted by shyness, and this remains. I am too interior, and this can often seem like bone splitting arrogance. But it is not. I do not want to be like anyone else in music because there is no point. I want to bring something different into view. When I attempt to clarify, I will admit that it often sounds like an attack. I believe England can look after itself. It does not need the EU to police its laws, its thought, its borders or its liberty. It does not take a genius to arrive at this viewpoint.

Because The Independent cannot keep their own views under control, it seems obvious to me that we must source our information from alternative news outlets - they, at any rate, are telling us that we should. British mainstream media is now so politically correct that basic truth is actually impossible, and although it is obsessed with promoting social diversity they will not accept diverse opinion. Most British newspapers can only offer secrecy. When news is offered as opinion, it can only therefore be biased. Last year I completed a questionnaire for The Daily Mail in which one of their questions was ‘Whom do you most dislike?’. I replied ‘Theresa May, because of her support for killing foxes and badgers.’ The questionnaire appeared in print, but the Theresa May reply was missing because it obviously didn’t fit with the Mail’s political position as Theresa May’s personal notice-board. Journalists only ever talk to other journalists, it seems.

‘The London intellect, so pert and shallow,
like a stream that never reaches the ocean.’
E. M. Forster.


I have been criticized in the UK for so long (nowhere else!) that anything said about me no longer strikes me as a threat because I am still, after all, here. We should, I think, be striving for something more morally useful than whatever The Independent vomits out by way of spite.

Katie Boyle, who very sadly died this week, said “you have to accept [the press] telling complete lies about you. You can’t take legal action because that fans the flame.” I see what she means!


In 1887 the masthead of The New York Times began its famous slogan: All The News That’s Fit To Print.
In 2018, The masthead of The Independent should read All The Shit That’s Fit To Print. The Independent has tried to put me out of circulation: and viva hate, to that!

"Even though England introduced the world to democracy, great art and great literature"

England invented democracy, great art and great literature? This is an ignorant statement. For democracy I'd say it was Ancient Greece although that was just a formalized system of a naturally occurring system that no doubt existed in other, earlier, times and places.
As far as great art, Sumeria had great and while "great" in terms of literature might be more difficult to pin down, especially since he probably doesn't consider anything that's not written in English, certainly classic works of literature far predate England.
I got stoned every day at high school and barely took my history requirements in college so if I know this then it's got to be common knowledge.
I just think he gets on a bender once in a while and no doubt has several lackeys to type up whatever bubbles to the surface of his consciousness and this is the result.

Telford grooming gangs. Straight out of the Tommy Robinson playbook. The man is an absolute disgrace.
So you are saying that there isn't any Asian grooming gangs operating in Telford? Rochdale? Bury? Bradford?Blackburn? Rotherham? The list could go on....

Because if you believe that there isn't then you really are living in a bubble.

To question an Asian grooming gang isn't racist. It's realism. Just like grooming gangs operated by white, powerful rich men in 60s/ 70s and probably still today wouldn't be racist to be said by non white people.

The problem is people like you who automatically call everything racist when anybody raises issues which involve muslims.

I doubt Asian grooming gangs is a problem in the small rural area you live in, but in the dark satanic mill towns of the north west, it is a real problem

I think Morrissey talks about what he knows the best - himself. Even when he thinks he's not.

I caught this also as most interesting. An extrovert trapped in an introvert's body is the most difficult life to lead. The strength it takes to be creative and will yourself to present your inner most feelings in a public setting is something I could never imagine myself doing. A lot to overcome and sometimes it requires this type of person to be single minded therefore opening them up to being perceived as arrogant. I think wealth and fame accelerated this trait in his personality. Not to suggest that he does not come across as arrogant just that:

"On the day that your mentality
Catches up with your biology"

I believe his aware of this, but accepts it as part of his persona, and is at peace with it whether rightly or wrongly.
Delightfully descriptive :raisedhands:

Lordy. Where to start with that? Hidden in amongst the reams of narcissistic, paranoid dribble there are actually a couple of interesting, if uncomfortable, points and a rather touching confession about his shyness. It's like listening to someone with dementia who fleetingly makes sense, then breaks your heart all over again with another stream of gibberish. I predicted on another thread recently we'd be getting more of this, and here it is. Now he has his new megaphone, there'll be no stopping him.

The awful thing is, if he keeps this up, this will be his legacy. Ernest Hemingway is as much remembered for his dipsomania and madness as his writing. I wish he'd get help because I can only see this getting worse (with increasingly terrible music).

GAME OF DEATH.
It's amazing how riled up that one Independent article has got him. It's like he's never heard of opinion pieces in newspapers before. I couldn't really see anything in it that hasn't been said by numerous other commentators elsewhere, but something in it must have really hit home and got him riled up.

Does he really expect nothing but fawning praise from the press?
he expects fairness just like every person on here,skipping the Theresa may question is a perfect example.

Funny as we always see the Devil outside ourselves. Being no exception, I see the devil in you, and this devilishly very well written piece doesn't distract me from the truth, and nothing will. The evil in you is not really in your political views. Sure you are entitled to your own opinions, it's a complex world and maybe your anti-European, anti-media stance has some kind of use as counterbalance, although you must be aware that your being a millionaire who watches the world around but never actually has to bear its mess kind of undermines every statement you make slash every breath you take.
Nah. The devil in you is the one who occupies your body and whom you let direct your personal life, not only your public one. The reason why people dislike you is not because you dislike Nick Esturgeon, as they don't know who that is. It's most likely because the animal, animal instinct in them perceives what their reason might not: that you're not a person, but a never to be trusted troll, hellbent on spreading misery.

Nobody ever addresses that because people are blinded by your skills at presenting yourself as a victim or a pain in the arse. Well this is all very clever but you are still to some just an empty shell taken over by a spectacularly stupid and self-entitled demon who had an easy job occupying a person with a serious healthy narcissism deficit.

As it's Easter and April fools' day, which doesn't happen very often in History, now would be the time to ask...

What's your name, demon? (Not worthy of capitalization I'm afraid)

Educate yourself, evil one, by reading what the Pope says about Easter, truth, good. You will see it still has nothing to do with you. And stop pretending you care about slaughtered animals, it's getting mighty tiresome.

But why insist. If you are indeed only answerable to Jesus, you already know your defeat anyway...

Happy Easter, demon, and to your missus, mrs D.A (aka the devil's apprentice). But a truly happy one to all good eggs.
And make sure you stay unfooled.

Fairness is acknowledging comments you made in an interview you claimed was false.

To hell with double standards.

Because it's fake news decrying fake news.

Why is Morrissey legitimizing state run government news reports?

People like you are why dictatorships exist. The public can't be trusted with the nuance of state run affairs.

I don't find it a problem. These things should be talked about, openly and impartially, instead of being hidden under a blanket of embarrassed political sensitivity. He is right about that. The trouble is he's shot himself in the arse before he's even started because of all the tripe he's spouted previously. He's allowed much of the (predominantly left-leaning) media to pigeonhole him as Mad Old Mozzer (the few right-leaning media outlets thought he was mad to start with), and you have to say he's only got himself to blame. He's alienated pretty much everybody yet is outraged when nobody takes him seriously.

No-one's ever really called him mad. That wouldn't be a problem. Just bigoted, foolish and muddled.

It effectively went bust a couple of years ago, and now continues (just) as a website.

You're so right. Uncleskinny has actually proven Morrissey's point by his post: everyone mentioning an unsettling truth is immediately called a racists by lefty fascists like Uncleskinny.

Morrissey needs to have his hideous under-bite shoved in.

He's been trying to hide it in interviews for decades now.
